    lol
    You can get a pretty good idea of what all those features do by downloading Parthas portable 2.7.3.
    I believe all but the PDF save feature is working so far. :)

    I've given up waiting for it. Every year they say by the end of the year then the following spring they say by the end of the year again. I'm not bashing them, I know it's s big job and they're understaffed, I just use 2.6.11 and don't expect anything new in my lifetime. Some of the features will be really handy though.

    New 2.7.3 update for Gimp-2.7.3 August compile.
    <a class="postlink" href="http://partha.com/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://partha.com/</a>
    Available downloads
    Windows 32 bit portable
    Windows 32 bit regular install

    Windows 64 bit portable
    Windows 64 bit regular install

    Partha also has compiled the newest GMIC-1.5 in 64 and 32 bit versions.
    GMIC 1.5 64 bit
    GMIC 1.5 32 bit

    Maffe to change themes just create a new directory with the theme name, and drop the gtkrc from that theme in it.Restart Gimp and change the theme from edit/pref/themes.
    Just be sure the folder you create has the same name as the gtkrc file.

    That's actually kind of rounded if you look at it closer Maffe.
    But yes if you have the Aurora Midnight theme just copy the entire folder to the .gimp-2.7/themes folder and restart Gimp, change the theme. :)
    This one is a different dark theme than Auroras.

    Maffe you should know that Gimp-2.7.3 PORTABLE also installs user folders in it's installation directory.You should use those for any new additions to your Gimp program.Such as brushes, scripts, plug-ins, and theme folders. :)

    All you have to do is locate the appropriate themes from gtk-themes and dump them in the local .gimp-2.7/themes directory. The directory .gimp-2.7 is automatically created by the portable version at the default location where it is installed.
